RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for yp.conf (redhat section 5)

yp.conf(5)			       File Formats Manual			       yp.conf(5)

NAME
       /etc/yp.conf - NIS binding configuration file

DESCRIPTION
       The  file  /etc/yp.conf is read from ypbind(8) at startup or when receiving signal SIGHUP.
       The entries are used for the initial binding.  Valid entries are

       domain nisdomain server hostname
	      Use server hostname for the domain nisdomain.  You could have more then  one  entry
	      of this type for a single domain.

       domain nisdomain broadcast
	      Use broadcast on the local net for domain nisdomain.

       ypserver hostname
	      Use server server for the local domain.

       If  for a specific domain the broadcast option and fixed server are given, ypbind-mt tries
       at first the given servers before falling back to broadcasting for a running server.
